  1. Interesting: the use of the words “archive” v. “archives”
    I’m considering whether or not to change my current theme from Unsleepable to zBench, so that will mean the change from “Archive for the ‘CNH’ Category” to “Category Archives: CNH.” I think that is a change I can accept without much stress.

    Went on a merry little chase to discover the differences between the apparently singular and plural versions of the base word, what the differences between a place and the contents, and whether it is always a noun or can be used as a verb. If your are interested in some of how my time was so well spent this Sunday morning: What (Some) Archivists Think

    Hope you are well. t

  2. OOps You can delete the ping—now I’m wondering if I’d put something sensible into the excerpt module, would the ping gone out with less of my foolish ramblings?

  3. Of course I don’t have an informed opinion on archive vs archives, so I’ll check your links later.

    But I do have an (informed) opinion on French origin! The word may have have found its way into English that way, but its origin is very Greek: latinized version of αρχείον, deriving from αρχή. “Αρχή” means authority, rule, government; “αρχείον” originally meant place where the authorities meet, later public record.

    And I like zBench.

  4. My links were mere meandering: innocent curiosity.
    A Greek origin for a French word, via Latin! Very nice.

    place where the authorities meet, later public record

    OK a place and the contents? Both nouns.
    I’ll have to twist my brain around “authority, rule, government.”
    αρχή, top? google translate… top, so ok it makes a sense, =”authority, rule, government.”
    So, a stupid question, but how would you say that in English? αρχή

    No mind, I am eagerly waiting for your summary, notes/details, critique about zBench. If you will be doing such a post…

  5. Greek to Latin to French to English: frequent route!

    Yes, “αρχή” also means top, beginning, origin, and principle – so not so mind-twisting: think of the principals (the exact Latin equivalent of “αρχή” is principium: both beginning and principle). Verb “άρχω” = I am at the beginning, I lead the way -> I rule, I govern, I command.

    Post on zBench? Don’t think so – no quirks like those of, say, Structure. The only tricky thing is the layouts; conveniently taken care of here:

  6. Mind-expanding, then—
    inception Greek to Latin

  7. I was hoping to have a nice narrow header, but I can’t get it to work. zBench also doesn’t seem to handle position:absolute or relative in a ‘normal’ way. Fixed works as expected, but not useful for my purpose. Even so, z-Bench has features that Unsleepable lacks.

    Posted by Tess | November 23, 2010, 18:49
  8. Right: position absolute doesn’t work, and the header image is too large; I think the theme looks better with no header image at all.

    Posted by Panos | November 23, 2010, 23:21
  9. agree: no header will be better.
